Westvleteren Blond is the basic beer for the monks’ own consumption, since 1999, when the former 6° dark ale (red cap) was finally discarded, after the 4° had already gone that path.

Geel, beetje troebel vooral door de gistresten, met goede witte schuimkraag die een vrij dikke laag overlaat. Geur van citroen(taart) en wat banaan en brood. Smaak is licht citroen, wat kruidig met wat gist. Beperkt koolzuur en iets romigere aanvoel dan gemiddeld. Het is een vrij simpel bier, maar heeft toch meer diepgang dan je in eerste instantie merkt. Aldus Huubs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaske delt med importør og skibsrederen, juli-14: højt skum som daler høflig til gardinformat. Snill aroma av citrus, litt sukker og belgisk gjær (og krydderet fra den). Fin munnfylde med citrustoner som akkompagnerer krydder og humle på en meget balansert måte. Men jeg skjønner ikke all den uforbeholdne jubelen omkring denne, der finnes mange belgiske øl som gir like stor drikkeopplevelse.

Holmen2 (702) - NORWAY - JUL 30, 2014
Pale golden. Dense and persistent white head and lacing. Aroma of Czech pilsner hops, white candy sugar, grass and hay. Similar taste. Well-balanced with high drinkability. Very good, but not spectacular

One of the best beers ever made. I’ve to drive 350km for this beer, but still love it.

paulvanpelt (321) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2014
Nevelig, geelblond bier met wat zwevende gist die met uitschenken is meegekomen. Stevige witte schuimkraag. Aroma is hop, gist, licht citrus, hars. Fris, bitter met een lichte zoete noot. Fijn, zacht palet. Flinke body voor een bier met een vrij laag alcoholpercentage.

StueyD (1122) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
A hazy yellow coloured beer with a thick white head. A light yeast and hop aroma, some spice, pear drops and tropical fruit. Dry mouthfeel. A spicy, yeasty taste, loads of fruit and spice, and a background maltiness. The finish has a mild tartness. Tasted at "In de Vrede", Westvleteren.

Pours a dark amber colour, and some persistent head. Aroma is more of herbal hops with yeast. Very little texture. Taste is a little hoppy, and the bitterness actually hits you back in the aftertaste.

It was about half a year before I had this beer, along with the other two top beers from Westvleteren. I was so drunk that night and couldn’t recall any clue of this rare beer. Maybe it is not very special? I have to taste again some time. Hope soon.

Bottle from Bier Tempel. Yellowish gold, hazy, white head, high carbonation. Quite a hoppy blonde, some slightly spicy and earthy hop with a tiny hint of citrus and a strong yeasty funk. Extremely drinkable, crazy monks with their 6% session beers! Nice but not world changing.

Bottle--a stunner of a find at Delerium Cafe in Rio de Janeiro! Bright yellow, lively white head of fine bubbles, excellent retention. Very delicate florals, highly fragrant, austere malts. Deeply complex for such a light beer. I enjoyed this better than the 12.

Bona cervesa, equilibrada i gustosa. Buena cerveza, equilibrada y sabrosa.
